Liz Moore

Liz, author of Heft, reads from her latest novel, The Unseen World, just out in paperback. It's the story of a child prodigy who is left to discover her father's mysterious past after he succumbs to Alzheimer's.

Julie Buntin

Julie, director of writing workshops at Catapult, has already been on the #YeahYouWrite stage, introducing her author-instructors in August 2016. Here she reads from her critically acclaimed debut novel, Marlena, just out this spring.

Hala Alyan

Hala, a doctor of psychology at NYU Hospital, reads from her gorgeous novel, Salt Houses. Her signature mocktail, Alia's Tears, reminded us of the trials of generations of a family affected by war.

Karen Dionne

Karen has also graced our stage with her presence before, reading for #LateNiteMic during our very first #YeahYouWrite event in November 2015. That reading was from The Marsh King's Daughter, just out this June and already destined to become a film. She reads the same segment here, which appears unchanged in this exciting psychological thriller.

#LateNiteMic

Somewhat of a misnomer, but we like how it sounds: Audience members take the stage to read their work. Happens at about 8:45p.m.—not so late! Readers are Roger Dionne, Aya (whose full name [and correct spelling] will be added here if she emails us!), and Tina Wald.
